Pasadena City College men swimmers Stephen To and Cario Liu followed up their double event victories at the South Coast Conference Championships April 19-21 by each qualifying for this week's CCCAA State Swimming and Diving Championships at East Los Angeles College April 26-28.

To captured the SCC titles in both the 100-yard and 200-yard butterfly, qualifying as the state's second fastest in the 200 fly (1:53.34). The freshman is seventh in the 100 fly (51.28).

Liu, a sophomore, was conference champion in the 200 and 400 individual medley events. Liu qualified for three events overall, including the 200 breaststroke. Liu is the No. 3 seed in the 400 IM (4:07.26) and the seventh seed in the 200 IM (1:55.17).

The Lancers men placed sixth out of eight teams in the SCC Championships held at PCC's Aquatic Center. PCC's streak of having a Lancer named SCC Swimmer of the Year ended at six consecutive years as conference coaches chose Kyle McCurley (Chaffey) and Taylor Kneisley (Mt. San Antonio) for the 2012 co-honors. Long Beach City College, the dual meet champion, and Chaffey finished in a tie for the conference team title and share the SCC championship.
